    since all this death grip issues are still going on,
    is it worth it to buy an iphone 4 right now?
    after i seen the soft unlock video from planet being, im getting the urge to go to apple and buying the iphone 4 without a contract.
    i know the jailbreak/unlock tools aren't released yet but you might never know,
    or should i just wait till a shipment of fixed (death grip free) iphones comes in?
    i dont know when though.
    btw just seeing that video made my day

    If you are really worried. Wait til the jailbreak is out. Buy it then if you don't like it before 30 days is up you can return it. If you've gone this long without iPhone 4 you should be able to wait a couple more weeks* until the jb is released.

    *"couple weeks" is a total guess
    Have they released the jailbreak in the app store yet?

    i think its totally worth it...I've had some of the issues reported like the death grip but I usually hold it in my right hand anyway and I'm obsessed with it..I could never go back from that screen.. i use my 3g for theming and as soon as I pick it up I feel like my whole phone must have a problem because of how bad it looks compared to the 4 but it doesnt hahha

    I'm in the same boat as u op. I was gunna wait and see what happens first plus I kinda wanted to get the white. But with the new fw coming soon and the need for the shsh blobs to jb 4.0 window shrinking I think I'm gunna bite the bullet and order one asap myself. I will wait til Monday to call and order it to see what happens on Friday with the conference.

    I'd buy a 32gb 3GS and wait until i5. i4 is proving to hardware fail which can only be solved by i5. It'll run 4.0 better than anything out there short of the i4 itself, 3GS is still a powerful hoss, the i4 didn't improve performance in any reasonable amount according to tests.

    I never buy the first model of anything, whether its a PS3, TV, or iPhone.

    The first runs of any product always has flaws, and you are bound to get substantially better product for your money if you buy the next release. Thats my vote at the least.
